I qualified in the year 2000 following an initial career in Surgery, and then trained to become a GP.
I have subsequently been involved in leadership of the NHS at a local, regional and national level.
I set up Leyland surgery in 2013 and we now run three local surgeries. I am a trainer and academic adviser and I am responsible for training and mentoring numerous clinicians in various stages of their training.
I am dedicated to the development and progress of modern general practice and will advise and promote to a variety of national Bodies.
Outside of work, I like to keep fit and very much enjoy my sports, I have five children, who we have watched grow into mature adults each with their own careers and aspirations. My wife is a nurse at the local hospital and my daughter is a physician in Manchester.
